Digital Stories for Transformation

Women’sNet has used digital media since its inception in 1998 to amplify women’s voices and share information and knowledge. We are committed to challenging traditional approaches to developing media which appropriates women’s voices misrepresents us, and disempowers us, our approach to digital stories is one of empowerment, of women’s control over their voices and stories, and respectful of process and product. In the process of making digital stories, the importance of women’s control and empowered use of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) tools is emphasised.
